DRAMA GAMES - Islands & Sharks - age 5-7s

Drama Games to play At Home / Garden


What you need?


How to Play?

Travel from one side of the room / house / garden to the other without touching the floor. You can only stand on the paper. If you touch the floor, go back to the beginning.

Time yourself to see how long it takes. Try to beat your score.

Make it more difficult by making the paper smaller each time , rip off a bit!

If more than one playing, have a race.

Watch you don't slip!


Try playing the game with a cardboard box, so you have a boat rather than travelling on isands.


What you need?

Something to use as islands: Chairs / Couch / Newspapers, etc.

How to Play?

Move around like a fish swimming in the water. Another player shouts 'SHARK!'

You only have 5 seconds to find an island / cave / coral reef to go hide in!

Swim around like different sea creatures: Jellyfish, Dolphins, Octopus, etc.


How about adding in some music! Here's the Jaws theme tune. Can anyone play the piano? Try playing the music along with the game.


What would happen if you were stuck on a desert island?

Have you seen Finding Nemo?
